Talent pooling: When to hire data scientists vs. when to train?

03 Mar 2022
Human Factors

Firms have competed ferociously for data science talent over the past decade, with skilled professionals commanding high salaries. This means many firms have struggled to find or hold onto the kind of skilled employees they need. In response, many are opting to retrain or upskill technically minded staff to take on more data analytics, management and processing roles. While internal hiring can be helpful, it’s not always appropriate, especially at early stages of a Big Data project. This panel session will explore this issue so you can understand:

• Whether you actually need a data scientist or not
• When hiring consultants is the right option
• How to hire analytics professionals internally
• Overview of training options available
